Having a problem with 9mm flat point bullets

Anything greater than 1.031 will stick in the chamber. Although recommendations are 1.050 that length will jam because there is no taper on a flat point. I've been running 4.2 grains of Titegroup when using round nose with a COL of 1.125. Any issues I should be concerned with.

No. I have an ultra. I can run up to 1.036. After that it binds on the rifling.
